  • 9. Literature
    • R. Rentenaar (2002): “The more special categories in the sources relevant to toponymy include those created by the onmasticians themselves, such as records, questionnaires and field name maps. In theory, these are the most reliable sources that a researcher could wish for. After all, the information has been recorded straight from the mouths of the users with the sole aim of obtaining the purest possible toponymical data. All the same, it can do no harm to exercise caution. Memories can change over the years (...).”
